  • Great place. It's free, just go. A beautiful spot right in the middle of food and fun. Water access for boats,kayaks, picnic area w grills and a small beach for swimming. Thank me later.
  • Great spot for chilling at Rangley lake. Completely free. Has a nice small beach w covered picnic tables, small play area for the kiddo's, tennis & b-ball courts. All right in the middle of the shops and eateries in this wonderful little Maine village.
